    Fruity with a tendency towards an artificially sweet aroma. More pleasant in the mouth than in the nose.
    • Nose
      70 70
      Immediately fruity esters on the nose - but with a tendency towards gummy bears and wine gums. Something like a solvent like glue.
    • Taste
      75 75
      The taste is much less artificial. You can see sweet apples, honey and some cinnamon. Alcoholic spiciness is a counterpoint to the otherwise sweet, smooth impression. With the next sip, it gets a bit tart like vanilla pudding without sugar.
    • Finish
      72 72
      Relatively short finish with caramel and subtly a bit tart, like lightly burnt pancakes.

    FRABE: light gold / honey

    - by far the best among the 3 from the Dragon
    - but he couldn't really convince either
    - There are approaches of complexity, but for the
    The quality shown is also too expensive
    • Nose
      very fruity, apricot, peach, yellow fruits, woody, bitter, alcoholic taste increases
    • Taste
      a fruity aromatic start,
      remains quite fruity and also becomes a bit creamy,
      at the end wood is added, becoming a bit bitter
    • Finish
      medium-long and powerful finish;
      medium-long still burning aftertaste

  5. schengel10 scored this whisky 69 points Connoisseur

    in my evaluation table, average whiskys get 60 - 70 points;
    In my opinion, the MYTH is the best of the Dragon range = good average!
    [Color:] = light gold;
    • Nose
      69 69
      very fruity (apricot, peach), some oak (bitter);
    • Taste
      70 70
      fruity aromatic start, full, fruity, creamy, wood (bitter substances), oily body;
    • Finish
      68 68
      medium length, nice fruity, some alcohol in the aftertaste;

  6. marmeladow scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    bottle code 73347. According to Michael Jackson (3rd edition 2017), the entire inventory is filled month by month, so that changes (as with CELT) are always possible.
    Clearly the best in the Dragon series.
    A round, fresh and quite drinkable summer W, whose presumed youth comes along as a pleasant youth freshness. One cannot expect the complexity of older W. It takes time to breathe to unfold its diversity. The 41% are sufficient to carry the aromas well.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Light golden like fruity but strong white wine from the south. Quite impressive nose with fruit, citrus and floral notes
    • Taste
      83 83
      round, velvety, very pleasant mouthfeel. Later pleasantly spicy with oak notes
    • Finish
      81 81
      In short, not very impressive
